Installation of Windows SDK failed on Windows 7 x64. "installation failed with return code 5100"

I try and install the SK and it fails for both the Web installer and the ISO>DVD route. Same error each time:

12:22:50 PM Wednesday, July 11, 2012: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.1\Setup\SFX\vcredist_x64.exe installation failed with return code 5100

The following lines are less than helpful because they suggest going to a place I don't have.

12:23:21 PM Wednesday, July 11, 2012: [SDKSetup:Error] Config_Products_Install: Installation of Product Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 (failed): Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information. Stack: at SDKSetup.Product.ConfigureRelatedSfx() at SDKSetup.Product.ConfigureNewProduct(ManualResetEvent CancelEvent)
12:23:21 PM Wednesday, July 11, 2012: [SDKSetup:Info] Config_Products_InstallNew: End installation of new product: Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7
12:23:21 PM Wednesday, July 11, 2012: [SDKSetup:Error] Config_Products_Install: Windows SDK Setup (failed): Installation of the "Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7" product has reported the following error: Please refer to Samples\Setup\HTML\ConfigDetails.htm document for further information.

Any ideas what might be worng? The rest of the log file is too big for this message but I can send it to anyone who can help.
